New Headquarters for the Foundation

Current Funds

The Foundation is announcing their new

headquarters to better serve the community. Mary

Coffee, a longtime board member from Oak Harbor,

said that the office creates more visibility and will

“hopefully help the Foundation garner more

community support.” The new office will be open by

appointment and during special events.

Tina Hablitzel, who joined the board in 2015, said

the “little blue house” on Madison is a natural fit for

the Foundation. “This was my father-in-law’s dental office for many years,” she said. “He (Dr. Derrill Hablitzel) was a founding member of Ottawa County Community Foundation in 1999 and still serves on the board today. It’s wonderful to see this space used to support the good work of the Foundation.”

Our scholarship funds assist local students in their pursuit of higher education and training.
